Love this 'Heck, our VP of Marketing is a CISSP.' It should be spoken out loud in you best John Wayne impersonation, with the correct substitution for 'Heck.'

 

Nice list. I'll plug Host Unkown's ahem, educational videos:

Might not get past audit, but fun all the same...

 

I've looked at CPEs anew, having lapsed my CISSP once as I couldn't be bothered to record stuff. I decided this: Join another big security/privacy org that needs CPEs, and then Tai Chi conferences and courses with both. If you have enough lucky to have a development plan/budget you can align to this, and a couple of weeks training a year will nicely eat through CPE requirments. I find having a couple of orgs you need similar for helps with motivation.

That's a pretty good list.  They left out the website of Iron Geek (Adrian Crenshaw), which has thousands of hours from security cons:  https://irongeek.com

 

Also...

 

A few years back when I was an (ISC)2 board member, I consistently heard members say they couldn't find CPEs.  So, I went on a personal rampage to post them to Twitter ( #CPE4Free / #CPEs4Free) , about 2 postings per day for 3 years, as a guess.

 

I've posted roughly 10,000 hours of CPEs on Twitter, and publish a daily "Virtual Security Conference" site with videos, podcasts, etc.

 

 

Here's today's edition: https://paper.li/SecWonk/1380860351#/

 

I get nothing from this except smiles.  Zero ad revenue.  Enjoy, share, learn, pass the knowledge on.

 

Peace out,

Since new resources haven't been posted here in a while:

 

You'll probably have to document it to make a case for CPEs, but anything you can find by Grace Hopper is likely both educational and entertaining  :-)

 

Volunteering gives you some great CPE opportunities.  (So does BSides.)

 

You can join our Vancouver Chapter, and attend our meetings remotely.

 

There are lots of good one-off videos on security topics, like this one about not being fooled by click-bait fake news.

 

You can read books!

 

You can find resources on Twitter (although, again, you face the documentation/proof problem ...)

 

If you join the replacement CISSPforum you'll find numerous discussions of CPE possibilities, and lots of details and resources, in the archives ...

Continuing professional development (CPD) or continuing professional education (CPE) is continuing education to maintain knowledge and skills. Most professions have CPD obligations.
